    After another not so good midwife appointment yesterday afternoon I am again now on up and getting ready for another growth scan and to speak to a consultant at the hospital.

    The midwife measured my fundal height at 33cm which puts me at 33 weeks pregnant apparently! I have grown only 2cm in 2 weeks. They found a trace of protein in my urine and the babies heartbeat was elevated to 184bpm for 30 minutes to which they got it down to 155bpm which is more normal. I have been having loss of vision and headaches often so they suspect I may have pre eclampsia.

    I'm absolutely terrified of having to have a c section now! I have it in my head I will have to be induced or have a section!

    Will update you with how I get on later xxx

    Oh, poor you. Will keep my fingers crossed that all goes well at the hospital today. If it's any consolation I have had two fundal height measurements this week - on Monday I was measuring 34 weeks and Tuesday 39 weeks! So very different - I don't think the fundal measurements are very accurate at all.
    Good luck - let us know how it goes. Xx

    Don't worry about the fundal measurement I don't think they're very accurate at all. Also I had a growth scan the day before I had Jonah and that was a good few oz out too. They're just an indication.

    Don't worry about the c section the recovery from the op isn't too bad. They have you up and about in no time.

    Good luck, maybe another labour watch. xxx

    Aww hope everything is ok hun

    I was told we should grow 1 cm a week so 2 in 2 weeks seems right, although you were small to start with but hopefully it the 2 cm means your back on track

    Awww....hunnie. My niece was induced a year ago due to preeclampsia, and both her and her baby did fine. I'm sure you will as well!! The doctors do what's best for you and your baby!!!

    Wish you the best of luck and remember that we are here for you!!
